This year marks the 11th Annual Corcoran Country Daze! Hard to believe over ten years have gone by since we first put up the big top on the ball fields in Corcoran and welcomed everyone for family fun in the park. Take a walk down memory lane on our History page and visit our FaceBook page photo albums.

This year we celebrate with many of the favorite activities from previous years with our softball tournament, music in the park (free with food shelf donations) both nights, free family day Saturday and more. Most notable, we celebrate the return of BIG FOOT Monster Truck!Big Foot Crushing Cars at Country Daze 2009 Doing a car crush during our FREE family day!

Check back as the event draws near for updated info. Visit and "like" the NW Area JC's Facebok page at for up-to-date posts.

Any proceeds from the event go back to the community through the donations, scholarships and many events the NW Area JC's (formerly the Corcoran Area JC's) put on each year. Corcoran Country Daze is held rain or shine under the big tent at the Corcoran Park & Ball Fields. We look forward to seeing you August 15 & 16th 2014 for our 11th Annual Event!

The fun doesn't end there, join Hope Community Church for their Great Hope Get Together 5K Saturday morning. Race starts at 8:30. See our Events Information page for more info.
